Sometimes the best thing that can happen to someone
happens in the middle of a crisis. Derick is running from his pack, his family. He has to, if he
wants to save innocent people. His Alpha is planning an attack on the Whitedell Pride, and he can’t let it happen. Sure, he knows he will probably have to pay a price for his betrayal, but he is ready to do it. He hadn’t thought his price would be a good one, until he finds his mate in the pride.
Nate is the pride’s Beta, and as Beta, he has to follow the unspoken rules that exist in the shifter community. He wasn’t looking for a mate, and he certainly didn’t think his mate would be a wolf shifter. Not that he has anything against wolf shifters, but this one brings way too many problems with him.

Derick’s Alpha knows what he has done, and he plans to make him pay. When Derick is kidnapped, Nate has to decide if he wants to play by the rules and risk his mate, or if he’s going to save Derick, risking a justified attack from the pack.
Review: The book is well plotted with strong characterization, combined with several plot twisted and turns, keeping the reader intrigue and spellbound.
The second installment in this series titled Whitedell Pride Series introduces Nate, the beta for Whitedell, who finds his mate in the unlikely situation of betraying his former pack in order to stop a pending war. Derrick is willing to suffer whatever his former Alpha has in store for him to protect another pride he does not even know. The finding the love of his mate adds life and is just what the doctor ordered to heal this broken shifter.
Along the way we are introduced to new and exciting characters, revisiting recurring characters and layering additional story development for future books. The author lays the ground work for future matings and adds developments about the Mad Scientist and his further experimentation on shifters and humans alike.
I look forward to this author’s continued work on this series and cannot wait to see how this series will progress. In addition, I give big kudos for the character Keenan and his never ending amusing antics.
